"Dr. Kay Scarpetta...is back with a vengeance."

Cornwell's 13th Kay Scarpetta adventure finds the forensic investigator and her trusted friend, Pete Marino, back in Richmond, VA, to solve the mystery surrounding a 14-year-old girl's death. The cause of death makes no sense, and the reasons for Scarpetta's summons to Richmond are even less clear. When a victim of a demolition accident turns up with trace evidence similar to what was found on the girl's body, Scarpetta must confront a part of her past that she had thought was behind her. Meanwhile, Lucy, a houseguest of Scarpetta's niece, is the victim of a dangerous stalker. This latest installment is somewhat disappointing, lacking the intensity of Cornwell's earlier works, and dividing the focus between Scarpetta and Lucy can be confusing. Still, true fans will want to read it. Recommended for public libraries and popular reading collections.
